Hiking & Outdoors
South Africa has often been described as ‘a world in one country’. First time visitors are blown away by the amazing variety of scenery, from magnificent mountains and long white beaches, to semi-dessert and bushveld. The country is probably best known today as the land of Nelson Mandela and ‘big 5’ safaris. The country as a whole is rich in biodiversity and the Western Cape is home the Cape Floristic Region, the smallest of the worlds six floristic regions. This, together with the incredible scenery, makes it a hikers paradise.
